Live Edge

Live edge woodwork makes an excellent addition to any home. With a custom built table, you can combine elegance and functionality in any space. We work with the natural beauty of the wood to create stunning pieces of art to showcase in your home.

When a tree falls in the forest, it decomposes in 70 years. But if that tree is carefully milled, it can produce 14 stunning works of art, which may stand for another millennia.

At RC Live Edge Tables, we transform natural beauty into functional works of art. With their flaws and irregularities from trauma, droughts, and minerals grown into each one of these fantastic trees, we use our expertise to reveal their hidden character and construct a one-of-a-kind creation.
